[Matt Miller] Dwayne Haskins (rsSo.) to return for 2019 season according to "sources."

Submitted by BoFlex on November 15th, 2018 at 5:13 PM

In Matt Miller's most recent draft board, Miller excludes Haskins claiming that his sources have indicated that the sophomore QB will return for the 2019 season.

It'll be interesting to see if this encourages current backup QB Tate Martell (RsFr.) to transfer.

Can't imagine it would, even if Hawkins comes back it'll only be for one more year , giving Martell potentially two years of running the offense and let's be honest, Martells not exactly an NFL prototype.

If Haskins comes back next season it's not a foregone conclusion that it's for only one more year. It's got to depend on how his season goes. Martell would do well to work on graduating early. It doesn't make much sense to transfer if he has to sit.

With all the uncertainty in Columbus, I wouldn't believe any decision to return is definite, not for anyone who has a real choice to make.

I know his stock isn't as high as it was a month ago, but him returning is about as bad a decision as when Jones came back a few years ago.  Just go and get paid, someone in the NFL will take a shot on that high upside talent.  He will be lucky to be starting by the end of next year in a Meyer offense.

I agree. I keep thinking that at this point, Meyer has realized the problem and is just buying time until he reveals his all-running-QB, all-Tate offense against us - an offense that they're spending more and more practice time on these past few weeks.

And if that offense catches us by surprise or does better than the offense with Haskins at the helm, then Haskins won't play much against us and will find himself on the bench come 2019.

Yeah doubt it. Haskins probably plays one more year and goes to the draft. Behind him they have Martell, Matt Baldwin who they picked up last year and a kid who walked on with no major offers Kory Curtis. And they have no QB in their recruiting class which is still at 15 and doesnt appear to be growing anytime soon based on top guys their in on that remain undecided.

Martell is a better fit for Urban's offense than the other two, should he remain their coach for two more years.

Edit: They do have Dwan Mathis in the 2019 class, sorry.

There's no incentive for Martell to transfer under that scenario. Even if he stays behind Haskins on the depth chart, he'll see the field in some packages. By transferring, he'd still lose that year of eligibility without playing at all considering he's not far enough along to grad transfer.

This will be one of the weakest QB draft classes in a while. If Haskins declares for the draft, he'll instantly be a top-3 QB prospect alongside Oregon's Justin Herbert, and WVU's Will Grier.

Then again, the projected top-5 of the NFL draft aren't exactly QB hungry teams outside of the NY Giants.

Personally though, I just have a hard time seeing Haskins come backs unless it is for sentimental reasons.

Just like MSU was going to beat us when you decided you would rather rake leaves than watch Michigan lose?  Why do you bother man?  The basketball team was in the Championship game last year and the football team is knocking on the door of the CFP and playing as well as anyone in the country.  And yet, you act like our program is Rutgers.  Go away with your glass completely empty shit.
